I have the Medion MD9570 (five years old)but since I reformatted my hard disc and reinstalled everything from scratch, I cannot get it to function. I tried to install the drivers for the tablet but they do not seem to install. I have the latest drivers which are the same as when the unit was purchased. Medion suggest that I re-install Windows. After some two weeks gradually putting everything on I do not want to go down that avenue. I also tried to install on my other PC, but something tells me that XP SP3 download might be the cause as it also had worked on the other PC before XP SP3. I use Photoshop and found that a graphics tablet was ideal for editing. The Wacom Bamboo Fun Small (CTE-450) would seem appropriate for my needs but the active area is so much smaller at 147mm x 93mm as opposed to my Medion which is/was 300mm x 220mm. I have not used the Wacom and do not know anyone who has one, and that was why I was asking for advice as to its suitability for photo editing. It is the active area size that I am not sure of. Is it sufficient for photo editing?
A5 is the normal size for graphics tablets - your Medion seems exceptional!
The size of tablet is perfectly OK for photo editing - remember that the active area is directly proportional to what you see on the screen so if you have some especially intricate work, all you need do is zoom in on screen on the part you're interested in.
I find Wacom tablets exceptionally good and use them all the time - often instead of the mouse.
I have a Wacom Volito 2 (now discontinued) which was a cheap introduction to graphics tablets (c£35). Replaced now by the Bamboo Pen Tablet (A6)It's been brilliant, no complaints from me came - with drawing software that has kept my daughter amused for hours, and that alone is worth the money!
Thought I would just post this as it might interest someone. Whereas I had tried to install the drivers for my Medion Graphics tablet and nothing happened, I tried to install in Safe Mode and Lo! The tablet now functions!!!!!
